“Lá fhéile Pádraig sona dhuit!” (pronounced as lah leh PAH-drig SUN-uh gwitch), which means “Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you!” in Gaelic. We hope you all will have a wonderful day today, and we understand that you want to share this special & fun holiday with your beloved pets. Here are some tips on how to maximize your fun with your canine or feline during this holiday, while also keeping them safe:

  • If you want to dress up your pet:
    • put on the costume
    • take your picture(s)
    • take the costume off
    • This way you get the picture you want, and your pet doesn’t have to stay in an uncomfortable costume all day
  • If you want to “paint” your pet:
    • ASK YOUR VET FIRST!
    • your pet may have allergies that may not allow them to put something on their hair/fur/skin
    • There is spray paint for dogs called, PetPaint
    • There are also homemade recipes that your vet may suggest
  • If you plan to attend a parade or party:
    • KEEP YOUR PET AT HOME!
    • the noise and crowds of parades and parties give unneeded anxiety to your pets
    • your pets will happily welcome you home as you tell them all about the fun you had
  • If you want to share a pint with your pup:

On St. Patrick’s Day, you have to say “Cheers!” as the Irish do: “Sláinte!” (pronounced slawn-cheh)
